Clemson has eyes for Nkemdiche

It doesn't get bigger than the nation's No. 1 prospect, and even though five-star DE Robert Nkemdiche (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) has been a strong Alabama lean for months, it's clear that Clemson has made a big push. The Tigers' chances for the 6-foot-5, 265-pound prospect, along with those of LSU, Georgia and Ole Miss, appear to climb a little more every day that Nkemdiche decides to wait before making his decision.

In the meantime, Clemson isn't standing pat and continues to position itself for a top-rated class. The Tigers are looking strong in Georgia, where they are in good standing for ESPN 150 running back Tyshon Dye (Elberton, Ga./Elbert County) and four-star wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (Fort Valley, Ga./Peach County).
